Finally I can make my own - and so much better/fresher than store-bought! I prefer them without the almonds....more cheese! Prep time doesn't include 2-day fridge marination time. Courtesy of Emeril.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the almonds in a small baking sheet and lightly season with Essence.
  3. Roast until fragrant and light golden in color, about 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  4. Drain the olives, reserving the brine.
  5. Form 1/2 teaspoon of blue cheese around each almond sliver and stuff each into an olive.
  6. Return the olives to their jar, layering with the garlic and peppercorns. Pour the reserved brine over the olives to completely cover. Tightly cover and shake well.
  7. Let marinate refrigerated and sealed for at least 2 days.
